Default 91 Camry driveshaft removal

I'm replacing a torn cv boot on the left side and the driveshaft isn't
disengaging from the transmission. It isn't the bolt on type; that I'm
sure of. When I've done this with a Dodge Colt, I inserted a pry between
the end of the cv joint and the transmission. With a slight tap on the
pry, the shaft slid out easily. On the Camry, I've been trying to pry by
placing the pry in ridges on the cv housing, but the shaft isn't moving.
Is this the correct procedure, or is there a 'trick' involved?

On my 93 Camry I had the same problem until I noticed that there is a
plastic cover over the shaft and it is mounted in place with two bolts. If
you remove the air intake hose you will have more room and be able to see it
better. When you remove the two bolts and the cover you will have space to
insert a pray bar between the transmission housing and the inboard end of
the CV shaft and with a quick flick of the wrist you will be able to
dislodge the shaft. I tried for a few hours before to do it from under the
car in my driveway and it would not budge. Give it a try.

If you are trying to remove the (LHside) driveshaft which does not have the
outboard support bearing, then you need to position two hefty screwdrivers
of similar size, on both sides of the gap between the transaxle housing and
the inner joint. Then apply even levering force to extract the shaft from
the diff.
The reason this is difficult is that a snap ring has to be compressed. This
snap ring on the end of the shaft needs to be replaced before re- assembley.
